week was opening of president george w. bush's library. we saw president obama talk about his own future presidential library. let's take a listen. [video clip] ine have suggested we put it my birthplace, but i would rather keep it in the united states. [laughter] did anybody not see that joke coming? , maybe dick morris. an excerpt from the president's speech at last night's white house correspondents' dinner. terry is in maryland on the democrats' line. caller: i love your show. i have watched the white house correspondents' dinner many times in my 67 years. i thought last night was the very best. the president and conan were fabulous, and i love the way they ended them, both of them. some of the republicans calling and i think is sour grapes because they did not win last time. but i love c-span, and the president and conan were wonderful. the best white house correspondents' dinner probably ever seen, and thanks a lot. host: independent call, new york. caller: >> i just want to point out that the whole thing the americanhat people no longer have any media to trust. is all about
. for beingso much here. let's talk about what we learned last week and president obama talking about the potential of a chemical weapons. evan mcmorris-santoro, where we add in this? why is the white house's stance significant? guest: there has been a lot of debate. the obama administration said a few months ago, they drew the proverbial red line about chemical weapons, the idea that of chemical weapons were used, they would cross the line and we would see engagement. that is what people read about that. there were reports that some chemical weapons may have been used. shortly thereafter, the white house was engaged on that and some observers felt they change the way the red line works. the white house says it was a systematic use. we're seeing a lot of discussion about persian towards what might be u.s. involvement. it's unfair to say that will happen or not. the white house is now talking about using chemical weapons and what it means for how the united states in gauges. host: the associated press has this headline -- obama's syrian caution. one of the conversations going on in con
chemical weapons more than four times against the civilians. >> president obama has talked about red lines. >> yes. >> do you think bashar al assad has crossed a red line? >> not just for one time. many, many times he crossed the red line. >> what do you hope the united states does? >> i like them to help us to have no-fly zone for the whole country. >> nbc news chief foreign correspondent, richard engel joins me from turkey. richard, interesting interview. i've seen reporting on both sides that there wasn't proper custody control over some of the evidence as it was brought across the borders. that some samples were left in someone's car trunk for a number of days. are you persuaded about the evidence? or is it too early to tell what the allied intelligence services really believe is the case? >> i think it's very early to tell and i think it's probably impossible to assume that the rebels are going to treat materials and some sort of scientific or sanitary way. to give you an example, they believe that there was a chemical attack a few days ago in a town of sarakeb. at the same time of wh

days. >> wow. that's too much. thanks. let's go now to washington, and president obama in his weekly address today talking about those big sequester cuts and how congress quickly moved to bring furloughed air traffic controllers back on the job. the furloughs by the faa had caused airport delays across this country. well, here's the president's take today. >> this week, the sequester hurt travelers who were stuck for hours in airports and on planes and arightly frustrated by it. and maybe because they fly home each weekend the members of congress who insisted on these cuts finally realized that they actually apply to them, too. >> nbc's white house correspondent kristen welker is at the white house for us. with a good saturday morning to you, kristen. i know the white house has been calling this a band-aid since the senate passed it on thursday night. so, will the president sign it once it hits his desk? >> hey, good morning, alex. and welcome to d.c. always great to have you here. you know, despite calling it a band-aid he is expected to sign this legislation in to law. and it stand
with the president tonight. >> as president obama continued to trike to talk up an economic resurgence as the focus of his three-day trip south of border. >> let's do more to expand trade and commerce that creates good jobs. >> some better than expected news north of the border with the labor department reporting the unemployment raid dropped to 7.5%, the lowest level in five years, amid signs more people were finding jobs. in addition to april's gains of 165,000 new jobs, the government revised its february and march numbers upward, by a total of 114,000 jobs. >> we are gaining jobs, over 160,000 new jobs. unemployment has ticked down. that's good news. >> rick: still there were major warning signs the economy is struggling. the manufacturing structure created not a single job. construction employment fell for the first time in a year. the commerce department says manufacturing jobs fell. many are unable to find jobs. >> we need to have more people working, more taxpayers. not raising taxes. we could do it if not for that this drag of the health care law. >> rick: they said it's time toned the se

know how toviaz affects you. the most common side effects are dry mouth and constipation. talk to your doctor about toviaz. >>> president obama had a clear message for any lawmakers still unsure about the impact of the sequester. >> it slowed our growth, it's resulting in people being thrown out of work. and it's hurting folks all across the country. >> the president also took the opportunity to remind everyone of the gop's change of heart in the last few months. from doomsday prophets to self-proclaimed victors. >> even as recently as my campaign, republicans were saying, sequester is terrible, this is a disaster, it will ruin our military, it will be disastrous for the economy. we've got to do something about it. then when it was determined that doing something about it might mean that we close some tax loopholes for the wealthy and the well connected. suddenly, you know what, we'll take the sequester. >> the president then accused lawmakers of sacrificing the country's long-term infrastructure for short-term gain after they voted to spare themselves from the pain created by the faa
are right, president obama signed it. but then he voted for it. he couldn't have signed it if he hadn't first voted for it. they watched the sequester kick in. we talked about this. they watched cuts to headstart. they didn't do anything about it. kids thrown out of headstart. so what? was their attitude. they watched cuts to food stamps. didn't do anything. cuts to meals on wheels and watched teachers and first responders and cops and fire fighters getting fired by many cities and counties. they didn't do anything. but cuts in the penta goodeon or military didn't do anything. but when air traffic controllers were furloughed and the very first day of the furlough there were flight delays of up to two hours in some major airports and members of congress knew they had to go home for the weekend for another 10-daybreak, which they don't deserve and they might have to wait around the airport for an hour, boy, they got their ass in gear. on thursday the senate in one day passed a bill carving out an exception to the sequester for the faa so they can put all ai
options that the white house has been considering. president obama has been very careful in terms of not really talking about those options that are under consideration. tonight that changed and he said he is not at this point considering putting boots on the ground. using the term, he does not foresee putting boots on the ground in syria. the president has to some extent boxed him in. he said of course if syria uses chem weapons that would be a red line. the white house saying they believe chemical weapons were used but there are still too many questions about the origin of the weapons. president obama not ready to say how he is going to proceed when it comes to syria. so again we are still trying to get reaction to the israeli airstrike. >> andrea, you mentioned before john kerry is in moscow, on a trip specifically with the intent of trying to move forward diplomatically on presenting a u united front, to avoid further military escalation, to avoid a regional conflict. the chief on stek sell russia which is course with the assad regime, as well as iran. how does it change the n
to come back to the issue of president bush's legacy but the security threats facing president obama as well. i was in dallas covering the dedication of the bush presidential library and i had a chance to catch up with former bri british prime minister tony blair to talk about his thoughts on the middle east, the bush legacy, and some of the big foreign policy tests now facing president obama. you are in this pivot point politically of being so closely associated with president clinton politically, the new labor party, at a time he was refashioning the democratic party. and yet your legacy will forever also be intwined with president bush and his response to the war on terror. it's a very interesting place in political history. >> there was a british prime minister when he was once asked what is the toughest thing about being prime minister he said events, dear boy, events. what happens is something comes of a game-changing nature or world-changing anywnature like and everything changes. i was very closely associated with president clinton and still have a good and strong relationshi
. up next, what would president obama and form er first lady barbara bush chatting about at the bush library? i found that the most fascinating conversation. jimmy kimmel has some guesses as to what they may have been talking about. i love this stuff. that's in the sideshow in about a minute. this is "hardball," a place for politics. look at this. then michelle tries to get in on it. clusters of pustules, pimples. i had this shingle rash right next to my spine. the soreness was excruciating. it was impossible to even think about dancing. when you're dancing, your partner is holding you. so, his hand would have been right in the spot that i had the shingles. no tango. no rhumba. you can't be touched. for more of the inside story, visit shinglesinfo.com ...amelia... neil and buzz: for teaching us that you can't create the future... by clinging to the past. and with that: you're history. instead of looking behind... delta is looking beyond. 80 thousand of us investing billions... in everything from the best experiences below... to the finest comforts above. we're not simply saluting his
to the president. we talked to the winners and why president obama should make it his priority. >> he was actually unemployed and going through the process of unemployment. i thought he would be a good subject to follow. i followed his life. >> at the time, i had a introduction to law course. there was a double standard for those under 18 years old and those over. . was into children's rights i realized we do not have a say in the creation of the debt, but we are going to just a -- we're going to take it off. -- pay it off. -- they were not very excited about the prospect. after i had explained it to them, they kind of caught on. while researching, we decided we should add high-speed rail. that was very important. >> more from the top three student winners on saturday morning. >> president obama is on a three-day trip to latin america. this morning in mexico city, he spoke for group of students. >> he spite all of the values that we should -- despite the values we share, our attitudes sometimes are trapped in old stereotypes. some americans always say to mexico is depicted in sensational headlines
in libya. >> president asked why survivors have not been allowed to talk to member of congress. he said he wasn't aware anyone had been prerent from testifying about the attack and promised to along into it. a california congressman darryl isis pushing hearing. mr. obama says his focus is on the future. >> what i've been clear about from the start is that our job with respect to benghazi has been to find out exactly what happened. to make sure that u.s. embassies, not just in the middle east but around the world, are safe and secure. and to bring those who carried it out to justice. >> a special ops member who survived the attack says the military could have sent help from croatia. military officials have said that no help could have gotten there in time. >> shepard: wendell, thank you. police say the man who murdered a little girl her own home is still out there somewhere and on the run. investigators say they don't seem to have a suspect, at least just yet. the latest on the search is next. also, the first crack in the ban on internet poker. some players are back to gambling legally with
obama left them no other choice. >> the president was at one point given the option of being able to do what we're talking about right now across the board without having to do this piecemeal deal. he didn't want to take it. and he didn't want to take it because they wanted to have the tax increases across the board and not actually go through with the spending cuts. the problem is -- >>alisyn: the white house has been accused of playing politics and cherry-picking visible areas to make cuts forhe most impact. >> tell us about sports, clayton. >>clayton: it was day one of the nfl draft. it came and went without manti te'o or gino smith hearing their names called. they didn't wait too long. on day two, manti te'o was taken by the san diego chargers. they traded up to get him. i wonder if someone will let him now that the san diego chargers don't exist. sorry. the very next pick, the new york jets took quarterback gino smith. the move could spell the end of mark sanchez. >>alisyn: everybody just likes gino. >> a look at the forecast. >> a nice weekend finally temperature-wise for almost e
who have been killed, which is fairly small, is an issue for the administration. we're talking about weapons of mass destruction. this wasn't mass destruction. so, i think that's a game assad is playing that makes it more difficult for president obama. >> what would he would be hoping, congresswoman, he tries a few chemical weapons, america and the rest of the world doesn't respond, and that demoralizes the opposition. how far would you go to support more military action? >> no country in the region wants boots on the ground. we had king abdullah come to the united states, what he was asking for was help with a political situation, russia is in a position to help pressure assad, and i think that he has to go. i don't think there's any question about that. but, i think that all of these options have to be looked at, because the day after, the day after assad, is the day that these chemical weapons could be at risk, that if we don't address the growing sectarian that is there, and help the people who are more moderate, we could be in bigger, even bigger trouble the day after. >> i want
. >> it is great to be on the show to talk about this. i want to paraphrase the group and say i feel like i'll watching the sports world wake up from history. you mentioned president obama. i'm glad he is evolved to the point where he can congratulate jason collins on this. i'm more impressed with people like kobe bryant and the rock coming out in support of jason collins. these are people who had actual instances of homophobia in years past. the fact they've come forward to support him. >> let me play what the president said earlier today. let's listen in. >> i had a chance to talk to him yesterday. he seems like a terrific young man. and i told him i could not be prouder of him. one of the extraordinary measures of progress that we've seen in this country has been the recognition that lgbt community deserves full equality. >> you know, dave, in your piece when you refer to it as the most influential citadel of homophobia, meaning the locker room, when you look at players a lot younger than you and i, do peel like yourself put on a more critical viewpoint, that these young people, we see t
support to pull the rest of the world world.r to bring host: if you like to call and talk with nicholas burn, here are the numbers. host: let's listen to president obama speaking yesterday about this very issue. [video clip] >> i have invested in trying to bring about a solution inside of syria. obviously, there are options that are available that are on the shelf right now that we have not deployed. that's a spectrum of options. as early as last year i asked the pentagon, our military, our intelligence officials to prepare for me what options might be available. i won't go into details of what the options might be but you'll clearly -- that would be an escalation in our view of the threat to the security of international community, our alley lies and the united states and that means and this that means there are some options that we might not other exercise that we would strongly consider. host: president obama speaking yesterday. u.p.i. has a story saying that the president is close to deciding in giving aid to the syria rebels and will make a decision within weeks. what would arming
searched on monday and tuesday of this week. during that search, reporters had a chance to talk to him. he said he had nothing to do with those ricin-laced letters that were sent to president obama and to members of congress. he said he was being framed, eventual essentially, by the first person arrested. here is what he had to say. >> i have nothing to do with those letters the person accused of sending those letters, her defense attorney or his defense attorney said -- steered them in my direction because i was probably an easy target. >> reporter: now we do know that dutschke is known to authorities, the mugshot we are showing you, craig is from a prior arrest. if convicted, he faces life in prison. these are very serious charges. white house officials tell me that president obama has been made aware of this arrest. at this point, they are not releasing any other reaction. this all started in the dates after the boston bombing. that is when these ricin-laced letters were intercepted at an offsite mail facility. so they never got close to president obama or to members of congress. obviou
of not talking to each other. i would argue what is frightening is exactly what had happened on obama's watch. we are learning -- losing sight of the threat. for god sake, how could we not know this guy was becoming radicalized when he was on the internet for the whole world to see? political correctness is going to get us all killed. [applause] if you're interacting with islamic websites, i do not mind it at the item knocks on the door and ask, what are you doing? wednesday night how many of you believed that benghazi has been swept under the rug? [applause] the reason we're not been a it be swept under the rug is because how many people have served in the military? raise your hand. god bless you all. there is a belief that no matter where you go, no matter how hard it might be, we have your back. we will not abandon you. after benghazi, people wondered about that. my goal is to let everyone and that military and foreign service and all those who defend this nation against evil to know that you will not be forgotten. you're going to be remembered.
